Holy crap. One of my three favorite GD tapes I've ever heard. I can't believe the depth & clarity of the recording, & the warmth is there too! Seriously, this sounds like you're THERE!

I avoided listening to the Giza shows because I read in Phil's book that they played "badly". While they do make some amazingly obvious mistakes that would be excruciating trainwrecks in other shows, the energy they're tapping here is something you usually hear in tapes from about ten years earlier. Seriously, Sugaree peaks like a '68 Viola Lee Blues. It's 'cause they were psyched to be in Egypt, of course, and when you're listening to this show, even the blunders become part of the magic. Billy's playing awful good for a drummer with a broken wrist, too.

The dead have a different sound tonight, sort of a "cool" sound. Understated and refined. Perhaps the venue. Perhaps the stress of the trip. Unfortunately a very nice Black Peter is ruined by a few fools who decided a music concert was a good place to go to talk loudly. It's just not a song I can enjoy with some bozo chattering on endlessly nearby.

Great quality....the various lyrics sung druing Truckin show the fun of the Dead in full groove.
